I have been working an issue with a client regarding a high number of reported errors connecting to a production pool. After several monitors and lots of trial and error, we discovered that it was related to the source port setting in the VS. We had ours set to change and not preserve. It seems that F5 will timeout a used port and reuse it much faster then a windows server. This was causing the windows server to drop the connection and, of course, not log that it did so.
My question is this: Is there a way to change the F5 timeout to match Microsoft's?
